office in new york. she led antiwar demonstrations for decades and refused to pay taxes. for day, the catholic worker wasn't just about good works. it was meant to be revolutionary. >> the catholic worker is essentially a school, you might say. i mean, it's a place where you -- where you -- a lot of young people come to us. it's a pacifist, anarchist movement, and they come to us to learn more about this point of view of beginning a change from the bottom up, rather than from the top down through unions and credit unions. you do away with banks by credit unions. you do away with interest. you do away with by mutual aid. you do away with possession of goods by sharing. >> reporter: dorothy day spent her final years at this catholic worker house in manhattan, where she died in 1980. now, she's on the road to sainthood, with the unanimous support of the u.s. conference of catholic bishops. >> all those in favor of supporting moving forward, please indicate by saying aye. >> aye. >> opposed? >> thank you, good to hear. >> reporter: new york archbishop timothy dolan is leading the cause, c

antiwar thing, which again was draft-inspired. a polished the draft, which was done with liberal support. -- you abolish the draft, which was done with liberals support. >> what year? >> 1973. it was going down because it had gotten to the lottery system. i say that because the war in vietnam became a moral issue when, as that young punk on your show pointed out, the draft notices started getting out of ft. wayne and into shaker heights and bethesda, maryland, and grosse pointe, michigan. when the nicer neighborhoods were getting draft notices, as long as they had their college deferments and could avoid military service it was just an on thousand interlude. -- it was just an unpleasant interlude. then it became a real thing. college presidents have their offices taken over at at least four dozen campuses. martin luther king was assassinated and american cities went up in flames. robert kennedy was assassinated. the chicago convention that year. it was just trauma upon the trauma. nobody was in control. >> what did it do to you personally that robert kennedy was killed? >> i can

involved in the antiwar movement from an earlier stage but again she was not a public figure so he could send her to essentially speak for him. >> host: again he proved dr. king right. >> guest: i think so. i think he is a visionary. i think he understood the connection between the anti-colonial movements that were going on around the world and understood how the cold war had prevented us from saying that we were on the wrong side, that because the communist movement had identified itself with anti-colonialism, many of these nationalist wanted to have the assistance of the soviet union so we sought entirely in cold war terms. >> host: my enemy's enemy is my friend. you were in the country during the vietnam era. why? >> guest: you know for me looking back it wasn't that difficult a choice because i knew i wasn't going to go into the military. >> host: how did you know you weren't going to go? redrafted? >> guest: i was drafted several times actually. i appealed to be as conscientious objector and that was turned down so it was really coming down to do i want to go to prison for thr

washington, d.c., co-founder of code pink, an antiwar group that disrupted the senate hearings over c.i.a. nominee john brennan. a war criminal? really? >> i think we have to acknowledge that there are the killing of thousands of people, hundreds of them children that this drone policy is terrorizing entire populations. i was recently in pakistan and saw what it's like for people to be living under drones 24 hours a day and the fear that instills in people and that this has become the best recruiting tool for extremist organizations and is making us less safe here at home. so i think it's important to speak out and call for a change in the policy. >> slow down. wait a second. how is it making us less safe at home to kill people who want to kill us? to kill terrorists? >> we can only identify 2% of the thousands of people we've killed, juan. every time we kill innocent people, we are creating new recruits for al-qaeda. people have told us that in pakistan, they've told us that in yemen. they said every time a drone strikes and kills an innocent person, ten, 20, 30 more people are goi

absolutely think so. bds is spreading across campuses. many activist groups, feminists, antiwar movements, lgbt are joining the campaigns and the u.s. there are many campaigns on campuses. there is a major shift among a number of jewish americans. i have seen a steady shift of younger jewish american opinion in support of bds and palestinian rights. i think that is raising alarm bells in the zionist establishment among the israel lobby figures in the u.s. >> you have worked with jewish groups in the u.s.? >> absolutely. several jewish groups have supported bds and some have not, but are working on bds-related campaigns. there are many groups that have joined bds campaigns and are doing excellent work to pressure pension funds to divest from companies profiting from the occupation and get college campuses to divest their funds as well for these corporations. a >> do you sense that shift in the media, glenn greenwald, as you read broad coverage of the issue, in particular, the boycott, divestment, sanctions movement? what i think there is a paradox that in one sense, as public opinion turns

wars. i am an antiwar person. i think it is a misallocation of our resources, and i am sick and tired of my party always pushing one war after another. it seems like this is a business, and that is why we are conducting them. i second point is, you talk about free market -- we do not have a free market anymore. the markets are manipulated by the people that control the money, as well as the industries. that is what globalization is about. here is one last point. for example, electric cars, solar panels -- that was around 50 years ago. president carter even had solar panels on the white house. if our government would have been smart back then to continue that trend and take one percent or two percent of our economy every year, and convert it to green energy, people would be much further ahead. i am so tired of the republican party to always be anti-green. we have an issue on this planet. i would like to see some things done in regard to that. green energy is important, and we should pursue it. thank you so much. guest: no one is saying green energy is not important. what you are saying

the book is antiwar. it is not. it is pro-truth about war. i'm not saying that we should have been in afghanistan or that we shouldn't have been in eastern afghanistan. i'm simply saying that if we are going to send troops there, we need to make sure that they have everything that they need so they can fight this war. that is what i am saying. [applause] i did write it in such a way because i don't offer many transfers and the book. it might be that war is awful. but that is not what i think. i voted in a certain way. .. >> that means we don't put remote outposts at the bottom of three steep mountains, that's a general conclusion for generals and colonels to arrange. it's not an anti-war book, and the fact the book was embraced by as many soldiers as it has shows it can be read in a different way. in terms of my leaving abc news, which was a wonderful place to live, and i also live and work for ten years, it was entirely because i wanted to anchor my own show, and cnn gave me the opportunity. that's really it. i -- it was a tough decision. i really loved being there. i loved workin
